I don’t like going on first and second dates because it’s so taxing…Did he have fun? Does he like me? Is he just a player? Should I text him? Will he text me? The dating game is not always fun, but I guess it’s necessary to get what I want. I want one guy who wants one girl.
Over the weekend I had a couple of dates with a new, cute guy (who doesn’t read my blog..) He was a tall, super intelligent gentleman who seemed to like me. But I’m not sure if he’ll ask me out again because he hasn’t already done it. Perhaps I should be more patient because this is a holiday week, but we all know that it’s just not likely, right?
While I was out with this guy, I took a spill on the sidewalk. I mean, I fell down on a tiny twig like a big, clumsy dope! And while he seemed okay with the fact that I’m 30 and kind of directionless, I think it bothered him that I appeared to be a clumsy ditz. Ha…I even ruined my beloved red patent leather Ecco flats. It was a sad moment followed by an awesome Brad Paisley concert. I wasn’t really familiar with his music before, but I am in love with it now. He is definitely an amazing entertainer, and I’d love to see him in concert again.
So instead of stressing over whether he’ll ask me out again, I’ll just work on getting myself settled into my new city. I think I mentioned yesterday that I found an adorable apartment that I can lease long-term, and I’m going to work on getting everything else settled next week. I’m looking forward to living alone again…decorating my way, cooking dinner my way, cleaning my way…and I can’t wait to find the right Weight Watchers meeting too.
I went to a meeting last, and while it’s definitely not the meeting for me, I feel good about the fact that I will weigh-in next week. The people were friendly, and I met a territory manager for this area. She recommended a meeting that she thinks would be a good fit for me, and I think she’s right so I’ll visit in December. 🙂 What’s most important is that I’ll be able to gauge my weight-loss regularly again. I felt so happy when I stepped on the scale! I felt as though I was exactly where I needed to be at that moment. Weird, right?
So while I don’t know every detail of the future, I am preparing to settle in for a while. I have dreams of getting a chocolate lab (or maybe a white one) that will protect me and keep me company, and maybe at some point, I’ll find someone to keep me warm on cold evenings. Until then, I’ll just keep knitting socks. 😉
